According to Barsby’s book this is a picture of The Moorings Drapery Store all decked out to celebrate Empire Day back in 1927.
Empire Day, which is no longer celebrated, was the 24th May. That day was chosen as it was Queen Victoria’s birthday.
The date of 1927 can be confirmed by the bridge at the front which shows this picture was taken before 1928 when the main road was lowered.
Can anyone confirm? Where was the Moorings situated? When did it become a private home? When was it demolished?
